Butchart Gardens is amazing this time of year, so it is no surprise I have been hired to photograph a couple surprise proposals. For anyone out there thinking of planning a proposal at Butchart, I have a little advice. First, and foremost, get there as early as possible. That was my aim with this proposal, but it was still packed pretty quick, even first thing in the morning. Also, the gardens are beautiful year round, and you will encounter a lot less people if you come from September – March. You can see a proposal I shot in March here.
These two got engaged at the top of the mound in the middle of the sunken garden and then we took a little tour around the grounds for some portraits of the two of them. Congrats Colin and Gina!
